Quite an interesting discussion. Many years ago I discovered Jupiter while 
looking for screen-reader in Linux which had an exception 
dictionary-and-also worked with a DecTalk. Well, in working directly with 
Karl, we found a DecPC worked well, but we could not get my newer DecTalk 
U S B to play nice. Likewise, Mike Gorse from YASR was not able to get me 
DecTalk support, although he was willing to consider a dictionary. Speakup 
has DecTalk driver issues which are frustrating, which I've commented on 
`quite a number of times. Some1 mentioned SBL? What is that? If I were to 
ever switch away from Speakup, I would certainly want a really good review 
option as Vocal-Eyes had. And a side question? In the graphical side, is 
their only ORCA? We tried getting a 2008 LSR running but not so far. 
Thanks so much in advance
